   Hugh the Drover has kibitzed 126 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Jul-11-09 V Zheliandinov vs R Nezhmetdinov, 1962
Hugh the Drover: And Zheliandinov met Nezhmetdinov. Rashid is the victor.
   Jul-11-09 Suetin vs R Nezhmetdinov, 1964 (replies)
Hugh the Drover: Nezh in White Suetin (-- The Moody Blues)
   Jul-11-09 K Opocensky vs W Hasenfuss, 1933
Hugh the Drover: The lucky charm of the rabbit's foot eludes a pack of wolves in this opus, a Dickensian Christmas Carol (the pieces are orphaned at 7). After a pawn-infested, oppositional mid game with bishops and knights, White's Mom comes back at age 43.
   Jul-08-09 A Bannik vs Petrosian, 1951 (replies)
Hugh the Drover: White with his bishop has a Luftwaffe, and an imperfect, center-heavy Alekhine's Gun. Watch Nick Ban go Gruzin' for a back-rank mate.
   Jul-08-09 Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard, 1858 (replies)
Hugh the Drover: "... But he [the King] ain't got no hustle. But the rest of them m'f's on the team, they got his back. And they run so deep, he really ain't gotta do sh-t." -- The Wire (Season 1)
   Jul-08-09 Mikhail Tal (replies)
Hugh the Drover: Noting Tal's photo, how's this for a pun: Skele-Tal. Sure, the eyes and swagger are intact, but where are the mein, the brows, an incisive stare, a dead-on (not side) view? This photo is like nails in a liferaft (though Tal himself would scoff at such).
   Jul-02-09 Koltanowski vs J Rejfir, 1928
Hugh the Drover: "Smart-ass pawns," they were. -- The Wire
   Jul-02-09 R P Michell vs Koltanowski, 1935
Hugh the Drover: "Unless they some smart-ass pawns." -- The Wire (Season 1)
   Jul-01-09 G A Thomas vs Koltanowski, 1935 (replies)
Hugh the Drover: With Queens aboard, Black's two Knights beat a Knight and Bishop in a forceful combination. Too nice.
   Jun-29-09 Chigorin vs A Solovtsov, 1884 (replies)
Hugh the Drover: Michael shoots Sollozzo (with a Black Knight laid out on the bedsheets, no less). Michael was denied a guarantee they wouldn't go after his father. "I'm not taking it personal; it's not personal, Sonny, it's strictly business."
